5 Things You Must Have to Succeed in Affiliate Marketing
The idea of being mere passengers on a ship meant to sail to the farthest points does not appeal to people who like to put their destiny into their own hands. They have the desire of maneuvering the ships themselves, of being able to be the ones to take it anywhere they want to. Being aboard a ship on its way to a particularly great destination is something each and every one of them dreams of, and the knowledge that they have the capacity to steer it themselves is what makes them actually want to.
Perhaps this is the reason why more and more people are succumbing to one of the most popular businesses around – affiliate marketing. It is because in this business, there are no bosses to order the employees around. There are no deadlines to meet and no clutter of work do to. One only needs to be equipped with the tools needed to succeed in a business such as this, and he is bound to get what his heart ultimately desires.
Just what are the things needed to be able to succeed in affiliate marketing? What must one have within himself to be able to do well in this industry? There is a lot of competition involved in affiliate marketing, and to be able to rise above the norm, one must be equipped with just the right stuff necessary to propel him forward. There are five things one must ultimately possess if he wants to achieve the glory he is yearning for in this business, and these five things are a must for him to possess to be able to stand out among the rest.
The very first quality one must possess if he wants to try his hand in affiliate marketing is the willingness to learn and be trained. Treading through unfamiliar territory is scary stuff if one is not properly equipped, and he might get lost amidst a jungle of the unknown. Learning the tricks of the trade is also an important aspect of the game, and one’s willingness to know it all will give him far better advantages in the business than he could ever imagine.
The second quality one must possess is the willingness to invest time and effort even if direct results do not seem at all apparent. Although several months may pass without good news, it is important for one who has his foot in the industry to hold on and wait. It is this quality which would save him from giving up after investing a lot of himself in the business.
The third quality one must possess is self-determination. If one wants to conquer the affiliate marketing world, he must have the ability to push himself ahead. Never having to say die is a quality each and every affiliate marketer should possess, and the ability to motivate oneself into scaling greater heights is an ability which would actually take an affiliate marketer there.
The fourth quality one must possess is discipline. If one knows how to teach himself to work everyday with all the energy he can muster, then he is close to achieving what he has set his heart to having in the first place.
The fifth and last quality one must possess is optimism. Negative attitudes and hearsays should not discourage an affiliate marketer from pursuing what he has to in order to make life better for himself and for everyone concerned. Neither should anyone influence his attitude toward the business, because once in it, it is a must for him to be the captain of his ship and the master of his soul.
The ingredients to success in a business such as affiliate marketing are diverse and manifold, but the most important thing one needs to be able to make it big lies in himself alone. It is he who has the capacity to do everything to be able to realize his prospects, and the desire which fuels his heart in doing so is the gasoline which should keep the engine going.
Affiliate marketing is all about putting one’s fate into his own hands. The right attitude is the key to being able to steer one’s ship into that part of the ocean where a certain kind of serenity can be found, one that permeates the atmosphere as the ship sails calmly on.
Buyers Beware! Super Sales Machine Review… Is It A SCAM?
As someone who has been around the block a few times when it comes to internet marketing, I was a little apprehensive when I stumbled across the latest offering by Aaron Danker and his Super Sales Machine.
I have been involved in this business as both a product creator and an affiliate marketer for nearly 12 years, and it would be fair to say that I have seen it all when it comes to products which offer step by step methods to making money online.
Would the Super Sales Machine be any different to similar products on the market and do what it says on the tin, or would it be another case of the same old out-dated techniques and worn out products that have been flogged to death by every man and his dog?
So, what is the Super Sales Machine?
The Super Sales Machine is a membership site which provides two review websites each month (free and paid versions) which promote popular products sold through Clickbank.com
I know from personal experience how lucrative this business model can be.
There can’t be many better feelings than hearing a‘ping’ on your mobile phone when you have made yet another sale, or waking up in the morning to see numerous notifications that sales have been made whilst you have been asleep.
Affiliate marketing offers the man on the street a realistic way to truly embrace the internet marketing lifestyle without having to invest a fortune to do so, but choosing the best offers to promote is often described as the fine line between success and failure.
One of the best kept secrets amongst those who are making money with affiliate marketing is that a well written review of the product which is being promoted is the easiest and most effective way to make sales.
The problem is, unless you are going to spend a fortune and invest in every product that you promote, AND you have the time and expertise to put together a review which will generate sales, you will find it an extremely slow and arduous process which results in many newcomers to the business simply giving up.
So, with that in mind, you can perhaps understand why I was little wary when I heard about the Super Sales Machine, even though the man behind it has a superb reputation within the industry.
On arriving at the official website, you are greeted by a video and information which tells you exactly what is on offer, and I have to say that my concerns were immediately put to one side, but not for the reasons that I was expecting.
Please let me explain.
As already mentioned, the business model is a membership site which supplies members with two Clickbank review sites every month.
These review sites are of an extremely high quality but more about that later, for now I would like to touch on the type of products which are being reviewed.
A mistake I often see from inexperienced internet markers is that they choose to promote products which are here today and gone tomorrow.
For example, it is all well and good promoting an eBook which takes advantage of a so-called Google loophole in order to gain higher search engine rankings.
They may make a few initial sales, but then see any income grind to a halt as the loophole becomes outdated.
The marketers who achieve real success are those who promote evergreen products which will not only continue to sell this time next month, but also this time next year, and the year after that.
I will talk about some of the products that the reviews of this membership are based on later, but I should also point out the benefits of promoting on the Clickbank platform.
If you have not previously been involved in affiliate marketing, you may not be aware that you usually must obtain permission from the vendor to promote their products.
In my early days of internet marketing I made the mistake of spending hours putting together a review site to promote a home study course but when I applied to join the affiliate program I was refused!
Different vendors have their own reason for accepting and denying affiliate requests but with Clickbank you are automatically accepted to sell every product on their platform.
If you are not already signed up to Clickbank it is just a matter of doing so, and then you will be qualified to take advantage of every review site which is included in the Super Sales Machine membership.
Ok, now we’ve got that out of the way, let’s have a look at what you get when you grab a membership with the Super Sales Machine.
There are two types of membership on offer, a free version and a paid version which should cost $97 per month but is on offer now for $97 for a full year.
I know that it is always tempting to go with the free version of anything but in this case, an investment of $97 for what basically equates to 24 of the high-quality review sites is something of a no brainer.
Don’t get me wrong, if you decide to go for the free version you will still be able to go out there and make money, but it will be far easier to make sales with the paid versions.
The big difference between the two types of review sites is that the ones which come with the paid membership are video sales letters.
Believe me when I say that there is a big difference between the two when it comes to how well they convert.
These are not those kind of video sales letters which are based around someone speaking over a PowerPoint presentation but instead, professional actors who expertly use powerful techniques to explain the benefits of the products which are being promoted.
The subjects of the review sites in the Super Sales Machines that I reviewed are about as far removed from the usual ‘internet marketing’ niches and this is one of the reasons why I am so impressed by this membership
The four review sites which I reviewed promoted the following Clickbank products and I wouldn’t blame you if you had not even considered entering some of these markets before.
The thing to remember is that large numbers of people are passionate about these subjects to the point that they sometime think of nothing else.
They are actively looking for the products that these review sites promote and all they need is a little persuasion in order for them to get their credit cards out and make a purchase.
I’m sorry if I sound a little over excited by what is on offer here but the potential to go out and make money from these lucrative review sites is huge.
I am probably the same as you when it comes to running my online business in that as well as looking for ways to make money, I am also interested in saving money!
So, if you were asking yourself if you could put one of these review sites together yourself and save some money, I don’t blame you because I asked myself the same question.
I started to make a few calculations but after a few minutes I found myself staring at my calculator in disbelief.
The membership to Super Sales Machines is on offer at the moment for $97 per year, which equates to 24 of these review sites.
I couldn’t even get the price down to $97 for one, in fact the lowest I got to was just under $150 and that was by cutting lots of corners, not a very good idea!
I couldn’t be more impressed with the Super Sales Machine membership package and I actually feel bad that I had my doubts when I first heard about it, but I should have known better when I saw that Aaron Danker is behind it.
It’s not often that a membership site like this ticks all of the boxes but this one certainly does.
- High quality sales letters
- Promoting superb, evergreen products
- Easy to set up
- First class support
- Suitable for beginners and experts
- The ability to generate sales for years to come
If money is tight, I would advise that you take advantage of the free membership that Aaron is offering but if at all possible, make an investment of $97 and it will go down as one of the best investments that you will ever make.
In these times of uncertainty, when so many people are worried about their financial future, this is probably one of the best opportunities out there to make a wonderful passive income whilst having the time and resources to enjoy the finer things in life.
I think you can probably tell that I am impressed with the Super Sales Machine, so it goes without saying that it comes with my highest recommendation.
Good luck with your Affiliate Marketing Business wishes
